This paper explains that, at Christmas time, the gospel reading evokes the saying (to paraphrase): God created man (by this the presumption is the birth and advent of Christ), so that, one day, Man might become God. The author points out that the idea of the image of God with respect to the Fall and the character of Man took a backseat in the face of Puritan thought and Protestantism during the Great Awakening. The paper concludes that the doctrine of the image of God serves to improve Man's image of himself, which is no better recognition of the power of God in our lives than knowing that God is in us at all times.
